Outlandish Observations is 3 years old!
Today is the 3rd anniversary of the launch of my blog, Outlandish Observations! In honor of the occasion, here are a few statistics about Outlandish Observations:
- Average number of visitors per day (in the last 30 days): 252 (up from about 240 a year ago)
- Best response to monthly poll: 508 responses to the July poll
- Fans of the Outlandish Observations page on Facebook: 383 (this time last year, that number was barely 200)
- Subscribers to the blog's RSS feed: 393 (up from 298 a year ago)
- Total posts: 532 so far, including this one. :-)
- A link on Diana Gabaldon's revamped web site, in which Diana refers to Outlandish Observations as "a beautifully done, entertaining blog". (I was very pleased to see my photo included on that page as well!)
- My interview in the July 2011 issue of RT Book Reviews Magazine. That was totally unexpected, and I'm delighted that the article turned out so well.
- The OUTLANDER 20th Anniversary Contest, which was a tremendous success, and led to Diana Gabaldon's first-ever comment on this blog.
